Imagine a place of sanctuary where people gather to laugh, chat and relax. Picture a place where positive thinking and kindness are the core values. Over fifteen years ago, Mavis Cunningham had an idea to create that place. Her vision was special because it was specifically tailored to meet the needs of people living with cancer.
Today that dream is a reality and the Cancer Support Centre has gone from strength to strength. It has grown not only in size but also in its capacity to care, thanks to all the staff, therapists, client advocates plus the volunteers and trustees who have donated their time free of charge.
We also need to give a big thank you to all our supporters who tirelessly raise the funds for the organisation to exist. We do not get any funding from the government or local authority to provide our services so every penny has to be raise from events and donations, plus some grants.
You can help us to provide the support to those affected by cancer by :
- Raising Funds: holding an event for us; being sponsored to run, walk, jump, or whatever you want to do, to raise funds
- Attending a Fundraising Event
- Supporting Another Supporter through sponsorship
- Make a donation towards the costs of supporting people affected by cancer or Gift Aid your donation if you are a UK tax payer. We can claim 25p back from HMRC for every £1 you donate. (There is no cost to you).
- Give via your phone through Justgiving Text giving
- Raising funds each time you shop online using http://www.easyfundraising.org.uk/causes/thecancersupportcentre . It is completely free to use and the Centre gets a donation for each purchase made.
- Some times there are things we need to purchase if you would like to see our Current Needs
- Donate your time by becoming a Volunteer
To those who have supported us and are currently supporting us a big THANK YOU.
To Our Patrons who support us each year THANK YOU
